Knowledge management forum

Today everyone is in the confused state of mind. On one hand there is an information bombardment and at the same time channels are open from all sides– mobile, internet, TV, newspaper and number of them. We get stagnated in the route somewhere, starting from data collection—-> Information—> knowledge—> integrated knowledge from operational point of view—> wisdom.

KMC (Knowledge Management Forum) is the platform to come out of this jargon Where, a group of interested people meet every month to discuss any facet of life 

and to find out ways and means to face the future world with courage and determination. 

KMF for Adults

A group of interested people meet every month to discuss any facet of life. The discussion is triggered by a presentation by a group member.

A unique forum to discuss lifestyle changes for 21st century. It is a group of people thriving towards a knowledge based cultured society through regular discussions on varied subjects like arts, science, economics, philosophy etc.

Young generation is the “Architect of the future world”. We would like to propose an activity which will help to become aware of the immense responsibility and opportunity that awaits in front of the Youth.

KMF for School Children

The problem with today’s education is well known. Children can rattle on any topic without understanding.More than that their emotional sensitivity is repressed by putting them in the race over the marks–> admission—> degrees —> package track. The experiment is being undertaken to arouse an emotive facet of their mind along with instilling analytical/intellectual capacities.

Non-Formal Education

We cannot always build the future for our youth, 

But we can build our youth for the future

 FRANKLIN.D. ROOSEVELT

Non Formal Education (NFE) is a methodology where learning is related to what one can learn during daily life activities. NFE is mainly to attend the young people’s needs, aspirations and interests on a voluntary basis and learner- centred.The methods used in NFE are very diverse and based on creating healthy environments of trust and sharing experiences.

We got the opportunity to connect with the school students through Mr. Bhole who is Chairman of S. B. Firke Vidyalaya School, Thane.

Through the discussions on varied topics, we encourage Students to have such a time on their own where they can actively think on real-life problems and about the possible solutions. These discussions can be guided and monitored by KMF members or school teachers.

Mr. Saket Kanade, KMC member addressing school students

We started this initiative with the batch of 20 to 25 odd 9th Std students. As a general idea, we call this as Non-Formal education, as the scope of this initiative is still very open and may include various aspects.

The core activity we assigned to students is the ability to read, comprehend and apply to improve their horizon of thinking. So Reading an article or piece of literature, understanding and explaining the essence and then applying to problems and generating ideas was our main action items.

Initially, we started with lateral thinking (out of the box) exercises with students with various puzzles and games. Students have shown a lot of interest as these challenge their thinking. Science can be very fascinating and interesting; through this, we also took some scientific questions to encourage their curiosity.

We are also encouraging them for moral discussion and understanding their emotions and responses. This activity is basically to improve their ability to understand their own emotions and the emotions of others like friends, parents, teachers, etc. and use this emotional information to guide thinking and ultimately behaviour.

The initiative is in very primitive state. One step at a time they say, With the guidance of Dr Apte , and KMF members at Airoli centre we are moving ahead a little.
